Being Ken Berreen
Stagesmarts recently had its first visit from Ken Berreen, our UK-based business development manager. He arrived at our headquarters in Malmö, and the next day he made the long road trip to the factory in Arboga together with our CEO Mats Karlsson to meet the rest of the team and see where it all starts.
